Usain Bolt Scores Two Goals In First Pro Soccer Start

Usain Bolt Scores Two Goals In First Pro Soccer Start

Bolt saw his first action for the Mariners on August 31, playing 20 minutes against a Central Coast selection side.

Judging by his previous appearances in Soccer Aid, as well as Borussia Dortmund training, we're guessing that Bolt would be given a Bronze, 62-rated ST card respectively.

Bolt added his second of the evening by taking advantage of some outrageous defending before rolling the ball into an empty net.

Bolt spent a minute of the first half in pain on the ground after being struck in the groin by the ball.

He scored his first in the 57th minute when he shrugged off a defender on the left before unleashing a hard, low shot past the goalkeeper at the near post.

He promptly produced his famous lightning bolt celebration.

"They've seen me training, they've seen what I'm capable of and now they need to analyse".

Bolt followed up with his second of the game 11 minutes later when he capitalised on a defensive error...

Bolt was denied the chance of a hat-trick when coach Mike Mulvey hooked him with just over 10 minutes to go.

McCormack and Jordan Murray scored the Mariners' other goals in their 4-0 win in their final pre-season hit out.

His fitness has certainly improved and in time he may well be the fittest and fastest player Down Under, yet what is missing are the innate skills and awareness that all footballers have by this stage of their careers.

"My first start and scoring two goals, it's a good feeling", Bolt, 32, said.

"Because this is what I've worked for".

"I think my touch is that little bit better".

He retired from athletics in 2017 and has since said it would be a "dream" to play professional football.

"I think I made some slight mistakes but it's my first real game with the first team".

"He fits in very well and he has made enormous improvements".

"My first proper game with the first team".
